Presbytery Meeting – Sale of Bethany, Dallas property approved
by Rob Allen
Director of Communications
Bethany Presbyterian Church of Dallas has been in its current building on Cedar Springs Rd near the North Dallas Tollway since it was built in the 1960s, in what is now an aging facility difficult for the congregation to maintain. Also, the membership has changed from predominately Caucasian to primarily Hispanic whose members live in Oak Cliff. The church is located in an active area of residential development and has received an offer for the property. Presbytery approved selling the Bethany property which will hopefully allow the church to move closer to its membership and be a ministry presence in the community. The church may use $50,000 from the proceeds of the sale for temporary facilities. The rest of the proceeds will be placed in an account with Texas Presbyterian Foundation in the name of the congregation and the presbytery while a ministry plan is developed for its future use.
